In March, Dennis Hopeless, winner of the Harvey Award, and critically acclaimed artist Kev Walker take you on a dark transformative journey in the pages of Avengers Undercover.
After the events that took place in Arcade’s Murder World, the sruvivors; Bloodstone, Hazmat, Cammi, Deathlocket, Chase, Nico, and Anachronism find themselves feeling out of place and untrusting in the lives they left behind.
Desiring nothing more than to prove that they can still be heroes, in defiance of the world seeing their less-than-heroic actions on youtube, the team goes off the rails and undercover with the Masters of Evil!
Avengers Undercover is not just your typical teens-in-tights title. The characters dealing with their new outlooks and doubts comes to the forefront of the comic almost immediately.
“In many super hero comics, the series jumps from adventure to adventure, never taking the time to dig deep and explore how a traumatic event would truly effect the protagonists. AVENGERS UNDERCOVER turns that situation on its head by using this trauma as the starting point, “ says editor Bill Rosemann. “What happens after your teachers abandon you? Where do you go when you no longer fit in with your old life? When the world has rendered their judgment as to what lies in your heart, how to you prove otherwise? Dennis and Kev have the answers—and to get them you’ll have to follow our heroes down a rabbit hole of pure evil.”
“There aren’t any rules this time,” says writer Dennis Hopeless in an interview with Marvel.com. “The game is over and the kids who have survived have to go back to real life. AVENGERS UNDERCOVER is the story of what that feels like. We explore the PTSD of the thing.”
Their time fighting for their lives may have prepared them for the idea that they may not survive, but nothing has prepared them for being immersed in true villainy. All of them will face tough choices, and one will fall prey to their own demons to become a brand new villain! Come find out who will fall in the pages of Avengers Undercover!
